Last 20 points were scored by D’angelo Russell and Karl Anthony Towns.

Draft Jalen Suggs

Suggs
DLo
Ant
Jaden
KAT

You have a mix of scoring and two defenders with a good sized team right there. That’s the future

I’m taking Jalen Suggs because if you are playing DLo and ANT together, you need a knockdown point of attack defender on the floor with those guys. Someone who can guard the Ja Morant, DFox, Kyries of the world

D Lo’s playmaking in mind as a secondary ball handler feels so much more dangerous.

I still don't like Dlo taking all the shots but it makes sense sometimes. I just want the team involved. I get it that he and KAT have the best shot at making tough shots but hopefully, it opens things up for others after a few games of that.

Nah Suggs is the safe pick but Jalen Green will be the true super star. Draft Jalen Green to take Beasley’s spot... simple as that.

The key will be to see if they spread it around when the pair isn't shooting as well. We saw the same with Kat/Edwards when they can't miss, and then what happens when missing and not spreading it around. I only saw one shot, one possession late in that game where Dlo called his own number from the onset. He was getting pressed tight by a king as soon as across half court and wasn't able to look around. He just worked it all the way around to the basket from almost baseline and popped a short on that didn't go. I thought in the moment there was one he could have maybe found someone as soon as the Kings player stopped hounding him.

I agree that Green is a superstar. I think Suggs can have a huge impact on controlling pace and tempo and structure of an offense past his individual stats which is intriguing.

If you go Green, you’re committing to initiating the offense through Ant to some extent which I don’t yet love.

I’m actually I intrigued by Cade in this scenario and basically playing him as a point forward. I think his offensive game is a carbon copy of D Lo though, though he can do a little bit more theoretically at 6’8.

(Cade shoots 45% from 2 at the college level because of all of the contested midrange shots he takes because he can’t get to the rim. Only 3 assists. More TOs than assists).

Got lucky with Haliburton not shooting hot from 3. He had a couple open looks and was just way off so it looked like he didn't force any after that. But it's easy to see how team effective he is doing everything else out there and ends up +9 with only 9 points in 33 minutes in a loss with all other kings in the negative.

I pass on Cunningham he just lacks being elite at something. I pray wolves get number one , trade down get Jalen Green and something extra.. I hope Rosas does not draft for fit, figure out the fit with Green/Ant later. Green has too much shooting and athletic ability to pass up, Suggs lacks that.

He wasn’t hitting so we are lucky ... yet when WE don’t hit - we suck - fire Rosas - beg Taylor to sell - start McLaughlin - start Nowell - trade whatever

Imagine if we also had Beasley and Nowell to help space the floor and scoring. Okogie and Rubio are guys you can cheat off of. Layman has been inconsistent, and Juancho has been below average this year. Dlo, Ant, KAT, and to a degree MCD space the floor and create opportunities. I didn’t like a few of Dlo’s no pass shots, but I did like him taking the open ones with ice in his veins. Dlo gives you so many more options and he is much better than people here give him credit for. This will be a good opportunity to watch the PNR develop with KAT/Dlo connection.

That is the problem, I would rather they focus on Ant and Kat or Ant and Mcdaniels PNR because it allows others to shoot and an attacking Ant is the best option going to the rim we have. By Far. DLo can play off ball in PnR and wait for kick outs and then go play defense

It is a positive tweet or a polemical one?

What does Ant have to do with this? Do you need me to suggest a tutor?
